OGC Calls for Speakers for its Marine Summit in Singapore - 29/01/2019


The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is calling for speakers for the one-day OGC Marine Summit, which will be held in Singapore at the National University of Singapore on Wednesday 27 February 2019, as part of the OGC Technical Committee meeting taking place that week. This event is being co-organised by the OGC Marine Domain Working Group in partnership with the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore, and is expected to draw participants from the OGC community, government agencies, industry stakeholders, and learning institutions.

The event will provide an opportunity for the marine community to meet to:

  • Promote the value of interoperability and discoverability of marine spatial data (and MSDI);
  • Create awareness of data standards and applications applicable to marine data acquisition and use;
  • Explore the uses, challenges and cutting-edge applications for geospatial data in the marine domain; and
  • Further the development of marine standards in both hydrographic and broader, non-hydrographic fields (e.g. ecology, energy, tourism, geology).

 

The OGC Marine Summit is open to all interested organizations and speakers - OGC Membership is not a requirement. The Summit will be a combination of presentations and expert panels focussing on the above themes.

If you have a topic that you would like to present at the OGC Marine Summit, please send a short <300 word summary to OGC Marine DWG Co-chair, Andy Hoggarth andy.hoggarth@teledyne.com, along with your name and organization.
